Over the past few months here at MMF UK we have been building a network of managers from the USA which has resulted in 2 things:
First were these submission to the US Copyright enquiries which have worldwide relevance:
- PRO Consent Decree: http://www.justice.gov/atr/
- Making Available: http://copyright.gov/docs/making_available/comments/docket2014_2/reply/MMF_AC_S.pdf
- Music Licensing Study: http://copyright.gov/docs/musiclicensingstudy/comments/Docket2014_3/extension_comments/United_Kingdom_MMF_Featured_Artists_Coalition_FAC.pdf
Second, we are holding Spotify meetings, managers meetings and Spotify/Artist meetings in New York, Nashville and Los Angeles this week. These mirror the events we hold in the UK.
These moves are increasing numbers of supporters and relevance for our arguments about improving licensing, legislation and remuneration for our artist clients around the world.
